Six suspects were arrested during an armed robbery which took place on Tuesday morning, outside a shopping centre in Voorttrekker Road, Ceres.

The arrest came just after Ceres police were busy with a routine patrol check.

“Two APC-Security Officials were about to deliver cash at the shopping centre when a group of six armed men approached them. The suspects robbed the guards at gunpoint of their firearms and three cash-boxes containing an undisclosed amount of money,” says police spokesperson Billy Jones.

On the arrival at the scene police fired several shots. Police later pursued the suspects who fled the scene in a white Toyota Run-X.

“Police chased after the suspects to the Khayelitsha area where they were all seized and found to be in possession of three cash boxes and three firearms,” says Jones.

The suspects face charges of attempted murder and armed robbery and are due to appear in the Ceres Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, 20 December 2007.
